Battle Field Archaeology_Fw-190

A fellow blogger sent me this link to YouTube. A FW 190 in pretty good shape was found in a Russian forest. Interesting battlefield archaeology.

FW 190 found

Here’s a pic of some FW-190’s waiting to take off somewhere in Russia.

Here is some more information on the FW-190 featured in the above video. The info is from a German researcher and fellow blogger. His website is well worth a visit to students of WW2

Focke Wulf 190 Werknummer 151227, Code DG+HO. Lost after the pilot (Paul Rätz), 4./ Jagdgeschwader 5 had to make an emergency landing after a ground attack mission near Leningrad. Pilot is still MIA.

Found in 1989. Salvaged by “Jeremy Moore Engineering” in 1990 , restored by “Warbirds of Great Britain”. Starting in 2001 restoration was continued in the US.

US registry number “N19027″
